Thirsty Thursdays: Fizzy Ginger Hard Apple Cider

December 6, 2012

Ginger hard apple cider is a festive holiday punch.  Ginger flavored liquor is combined with bourbon and hard apple cider.  The recipe calls for aromatic bitters, I suggest using a fruity flavor like bitter orange.  To keep the punch cold, nestle it in a bed of ice or freeze slices of fruit to act as ice cubes.  This punch will definitely be a hit at your holiday party.
